The church covenant is an agreement to which one agrees to become a member and maintain membership at the church. The Biblical commands and principles are to be followed as a matter of following Christ for the benefit of the individual member and for the cause of Christ.

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father and the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now in the presence of God, and the angels and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ. (1 Cor 2:14; Ac 2:41; 1 Cor 12:13)

We engage, therefore by the aid of the Holy Spirit to:

  • Study the Bible and walk together in Christian love (Ps 111:2; Jn 13:34-35; 15:17);
  • Strive for the advancement of this Church in knowledge, holiness and comfort (Ac 2:42; 2Cor 1:4; 1P 1:16););
  • Promote its prosperity and spirituality (Eph 4:12; Heb 10:24);
  • Sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines (Ac 2:42; Mt 18:15-17; Heb 10:25);
  • Give it a sacred preeminence over all institutions of human origin (Acts 5:29);
  • Contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor and the spread of the gospel through all nations. (Prov 3:9; Ac 2:45; 1Cor 16:1)

We also engage to:

  • Maintain family and personal devotions (2Pet 3:18);
  • Educate our children concerning the Lord and His Word (Deut 6:4-9; Prov 22:6);
  • Seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances (Ac 1:8);
  • Walk circumspectly in the world and be ust in our dealing with all men (1Peter 3:16);
  • Faithful in our engagements (Gal 5:22);
  • Exemplary in our deportment (1Tim 4:12; 1P 1:15-16);
  • Build up our brothers and sisters in Christ by encouraging their positive qualities (1Thes 4:16; Heb 10:25);
  • Avoid doing or saying those things which might hinder their spiritual growth (1Cor 8:9);
  • Honor our bodies as "the temple of the Holy Spirit" by doing those things which promote good health and avoiding those things which may lead to our physical, mental, emotional or spiritual detriment
    (1Cor 6:19-20);
  • Participate only in those activities that can honor God and strengthen a weaker sister or brother in the Lord (1Cor 8:9).

We further engage to:

  • Watch over one another in brotherly love (Rom 12:10);
  • Remember each other in prayer (Eph 6:18);
  • Aid each other in sickness and distress (Rom 12:13);
  • Cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech (Rom 12:15; Eph 4:29);
  • Be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior, to secure it without delay (Eph 4:32; Mt 5:23-25);
  • Not bring forward to the church, a complaint against any member for any personal trespass against us until we have taken the first and second steps according to Matthew 18... private offenses which can be privately settled, we will never make public.

We moreover engage that when we remove from this place, we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.
